    Bring back the regular series with Creighton?

    I would like to see ISU bring back the regular series with Creighton. Not because I like Creighton at all, but simply because I'd love to see ISU play regularly in the Qwest Center. There are enough ISU fans in the Omaha area that I think we could give Creighton's home-court advantage a run for its money. Hilton West?

    It's one thing to have fans that might like to attend. It's another to have available tickets for them to purchase. Creighton has a loyal fan base who would snap up about 90% of the tickets. When they recently hosted the opening rounds of the NCAA tourney, there were no tickets available to the general public. Creighton season ticket holders purchased all of the tickets before a public sale could begin.

    Already happening, and we know this already thanks to Randy Peterson leaking it!

    I've thought that too. I've always thought that it would be fun to do a home and home with some good mid majors like that, Wichita State, Western Kentucky, Illinois State, but I would have a bad feeling on the road against those teams.

    I'd much rather do a home and home (if we could get it) with major conference teams. Looks better on the resume, and just about the same toughness.

    Oh yeah I think that would be great too but I just mean another mid major game each year and one less Idaho State game.
    I would not feel good about our chances against major non conference schools that are somewhat close to ISU on the road: Minnesota, Illinois, Wisconsin, Northwestern (we saw how that turned out), Marquette, Purdue, Indiana, Notre Dame, Michigan State.

    I don't think that qualifies as a 'series'.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I think it would be great. And in bball you can play a tougher schedule with less penalty (as long as you win a few) versus football where you need some cupcakes to pad the win total.

    I'd go for both too.
